The research domain of the Division Electrical Energy Systems and Applications (ELECTA) covers the broad spectrum of electrical energy systems. The development of the future smart grid is a key activity. The research at the Division of Building Physics (BOFY) generally aims at the performance analysis of buildings on different scales: materials, components, and whole buildings in their environment. Research topics are highly insulated building components, hygrothermal comfort and indoor air quality, sustainability analysis and life cycle assessments of building materials and building components, energy performance of buildings, sustainable constructions, and urban physics.
ELECTA and BOFY take part in the EnergyVille research consortium (between the Flemish research partners KU Leuven, VITO, imec and UHasselt) in the field of sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems.
